Kaka out to end Celtic hopes once again

AC Milan playmaker Kaka knocked Celtic out of the Champions League last season and he would like nothing more than a repeat performance tonight. Having just been presented with the Ballon d'Or, the award given to Europe's top footballer of the year, Kaka would like to celebrate by leading Milan to a victory that would seal first place in the group. 'I hope to end the year in splendid fashion,' said Kaka, who has struck twice this season in the Champions League. 'My main determination now is to win again what I have already won up to now.' After scoring a goal against the Bhoys in the second leg of their last-16 tie in extra-time, Kaka's brilliance propelled Milan to the title. He is - judging by the huge number of people who welcomed him back to Milan after the presentation of the Ballon d'Or - a hero. 'I didn't expect so many people to turn up,' admitted the 25-year-old. 'I wished I could have hugged each and everyone of them.' Kaka believes he will not get carried away by his recent success and has big dreams with Milan. 'That's absolutely not a problem,' he said. 'I want to repeat every victory at least. I love football and faith gives me so much strength in difficult times. 'I consider myself a leader at AC Milan but my aim is to one day become captain of this team and to be an icon of the club.' Milan go into tonight's encounter leading Group D, one point clear of Celtic, who need a point to join the Rossoneri in the next round.
